Windy day in Northern Ireland. We were at Dunluce Castle with the Atlantic Ocean in the background

Talk about chasing rainbows. That is exactly what we did when we visited Ireland in 2012. Looks like we caught it too : )

This is my husband and me at the top of Nenagh Castle in Nenagh, Ireland. This was the summer of 2012.

Hi! I will be 70 years old in one week and I have joined SP for the second time now. I have been married almost 48 years, have 3 children, 2 sons-in-law, 1 daughter-in-law and 9 grandchildren from ages 23 - 5. I want to be around until I reach 100, be in great health for all those years and continue to enjoy my wonderful family. I am still working at a job I love and can't imagine ever fully retiring. I still have a contribution to make and God willing, I will be able to continue so long as my legs can get me where I am going : )

My Goals:
My goals are to lower my blood pressure (already succeeded) amazing as that sounds thanks to SP!
I also want to lower my cholesterol and I am considering the weight loss as my strategy for accomplishing my two primary goals.

My Program:
I am following my SP guidelines for Calories, Carbs, Fats, and Proteins and measuring EVERY bite of food and sips of beverages I put in my mouth. I am measuring other nutrients such as sodium and cholesterol as well. I have reduced my salt intake and have learned to season my food with other things. I repeat my mantra whenever I feel vulnerable.
My mantra is the title of my page...


That way I don't have to keep remaking the decision. The decision is to do this! It doesn't matter if it is a good day or a bad day, if I feel good or if I feel bad.

Whenever I say my mantra I calm down and drink water, get some fruit or just say, I love you Judy....

That's the deal folks.....I am here to stay!

Personal Information:
I am from Minnesota and I LOVE it!

Other Information:
I love digital photography and making slideshows with my photos set to music. I love creating a "feeling" and there is something about pictures set to music that can make you smile, laugh, cry or simply relax.
